I'm a traveller who is enjoying the sights and sounds of Melbourne
Published March 31st 2011
Near Malvern Train Station and adjacent to the No. 64 and 16 tram lines lies Caulfield Park, one of Melbourne's most scenic and best hidden parks in the south east of the city. With over 2 kilometres of easy to tread running available within the park and a large pond brimming with ducks and other pond life, Caulfield Park is also home to a war memorial and various sporting clubs which serve the Caulfield community.
The origins of the park today were established in 1853. As a Victorian garden, it is one of the best designed and orientated public spaces in the region. Littered with trees and facilities, apart from being a lovely open public space, the park contains over 100 different tree species, with five being on the Victoria Heritage Register. With the area also being one of the best if not the best serviced by public transport in South Eastern Melbourne, going to and from the park is simple and easy.
With the trendy Carlisle Street just a tram ride away and Hawthorn Road literally right next door if shopping is on your to-do list, Caulfield Park is a fine place to begin or end a day of walking around the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
